Jason Thompson and the See The Dream syndicate, managed by Serg Buccilli, look to have presented yet another promising youngster from Thompsons’ Pearcedale kennel in Segovia (pictured, box one).
Just three starts into what looks to be an exciting career, the daughter of Barcia Bale and Cintiarna has reigned victory in all three starts, with a total winning margin of 20.50 lengths and a handy $9,815 in prize money.
Segovia’s maiden victory came on the 6th of July on a wet Cranbourne track over the 520 metre distance. Jumping from box eight, Segovia used her outside box to avoid early bother as she took the lead. She showcased her strength in the home straight when she pulled away to win by 9.30 lengths in a best of the night time of 30.69sec.

The following week at Cranbourne, Segovia reduced her personal best time to 30.44sec when she won by a staggering 11.17 lengths over Hands To Myself from box four.
“Jason and I both think she will be doing her best work over more ground. I have never had a stayer so it will be an exciting experience if she continues on with it,” See The Dream syndicate manager Serg Buccilli explained.
Sergs’ involvement in greyhound racing spans over 30 years, in that time his interest in the blood lines of greyhounds has become more prominent. Throughout his time in the sport, Serg highlights his chaser Black Magic Opal his the most exciting time for him. Black Magic Opal had 48 starts for 35 and seven minor placing, earning a staggering $586,215 in prize money throughout his career, which spanned between 2012 to 2014.
“When I first started out I was buying dogs and hoping for the best, now I am so interested in breeding and I really think the odds will be in your favour if you get the crosses right. The rearers and trainers also play a really big role.”
The See The Dream syndicate have been lucky enough to be connected with two professionals in the greyhound industry in trainer Jason Thompson and breeder/ rearer Karen Leek.

Last night in the $10,710 GRV VIC Bred Maiden Final Segovia jumped from box one in her biggest test to date. For the first time in her career Segovia wasn’t leading when the field hit the home turn, instead she had the task of running down the talented Vancouver Star (trained by Sandra Galea). Segovia managed to snatch the Maiden Final victory by 0.03 lengths in another personal best and best of the night 30.04sec.
“Her run last night was enormous; the dog she was chasing down has ability. If she had of led all the way I really think she would have broken 30 seconds,” Serg explained.
